A time for prayer
President Bush now has a favorable rating of just 31 percent, with many conservatives and Christians abandoning him. Less than half of them give the president a favorable rating.
There is much more to these poll numbers than Iraq; they have to do also with the deals cut with Sen. Ted Kennedy over the years to pass legislation — including amnesty for illegals.
The president needs our prayers. He has many conservatives around him giving him advice that is contrary to the hopes and desires of the people. We need to pray that their influence over him will wane in the last year-anda-half of this presidency. Gerard Kern Austin, Texas
